Chip's New Home
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     What if all squirrels lived in trees at first? How would the first ground squirrels have come about? The story of Chip might be one way.
2     At first, it was dark. Chip could not see. Then her eyes opened. She could see her two brothers and her sister.
3     The four baby squirrels were very small at first. Then they grew. Soon their nest was crowded.
4     Chip did not like being up high. The nest rocked when the wind blew. It made her feel sick.
5     Chip's brother laughed at her. Her sister laughed, too. They thought it was fun.
6     Their mother let them go out to play. The others ran along the branches. They played tag on the tree.
7     Chip did not go out to play. Looking down made her dizzy. She was afraid she would fall.
8     Her mother was not happy. She scolded Chip.
